Default Wheel Tech question

I have an 07 STi limited and wanted to upgrade my wheels to some 18"s. I wanted to go to an 18x9.5, but have concerns about the right offset, rubbing issues, and what size tire is right for that size

Pretty much any 9.5, depending on offset, will rub. Without trying to tuck tire, a roll in the rear and a little camber should allow you to fit a 255/35 without too much hassle.

If you're trying to tuck tire and stance, do more research on the stance thread in members call gallery, and on the WFC forum.

If only we had a feature where one could search for answers like this.

If only we had 2 stickies threads specifically relating to wheel fitment and offset information.

If only someone could read...

If only someone was observant enough to read "scooby newbie"...

If only someone was helpful, not condescending...
